Protein is certainly the golden nutrient within the health and fitness world. If you're trying to get fitter, faster or stronger - improved recovery and an increased muscle density are key at achieving that. And protein intake plays a crucial role both fast tracking your body's ability to repair your post-workout fatigue and soreness, and build your muscles back up to be stronger and more powerful than ever. Protein is, after all, known as 'the building blocks of muscle'. Protein powders get pretty confusing with such a saturated market, but between beginners, elite athletes and industry professionals alike, Gold Standard is the most popular and most highly regarded protein available.
Gold Standard Whey is composed of a premium blend proteins, with Whey Protein Isolate (WPI) in highest concentration, and Whey Protein Concentrate (WPC). This achieves a high-quality formulation to maximise protein content within even a single scoop (at 24g) and to provide optimal bioavailability of nutrients to aid superior absorption within the body. This means the protein molecules get utilised both better and faster by your body and muscles. With the increased protein content in your diet from a scoop or two of Gold Standard Whey, you can expect to see results in improved lean muscle tone, increased workout performance in strength, power and speed parameters and even leaner body composition too.
Gold Standard is also a super-lean protein. No stress on your diet or your body composition goals here legend. Within Gold Standard you can expect 24g of protein per scoop, whilst containing only 1g of fat and 3g of naturally occurring carbohydrates- only 1g of which is sugar! Whether you're trying to loose weight, trying to tone or lean up through fat burn, or trying to save your previous carbs for a plate full of pasta later - Gold Standard isn't going to ruin those goals for you.
But what good is the quality and content of a protein powder if you don't genuinely enjoy drinking it! Gold Standard Whey definitely has this base covered too legends. Gold Standard Whey is instantised for superior mixability - so you can mix up a shake smooth as silk with even just a spoon in a matter of 10 seconds - completely clump free. You can also expect from Golf Standard Whey nothing but pure creaminess and smoothness - proven to taste just like a milkshake. Best of all, the flavours don't let down on the Milkshake vibes either.
Gold Standard Whey comes in an incredibly delicious range of flavours, including:
Vanilla Cream - A smooth creamy vanilla delight, soft and tasteful.
Delicious Strawberry - Sweet, strawberry milkshake.
Double Rich Chocolate - A rich dairy chocolate taste, no over-powering artificial aftertaste.
Cookies & Cream - Very familiar cookies in a milky mixture, what makes this flavour so unique is the tiny crumbles in each mouthful.
Extreme Milk Chocolate - A chocolate taste that reminds us of brownies!
Banana - A crowd favourite! Fruity, sweet and creamy all at the same time!

I have now tried two flavours from the optimum nutrition brand, those flavours being the cookies and cream and banana cream. They taste great on their own in water or milk but with water definitely tastes better. The cookies and cream flavour is best to have on its own, I put it in a fruit smoothie and gave it a funny taste. Awesome brand and great flavours
The taste is awful. Worse whey flavour I have ever had.
